How do you know you’re choosing the right chiropractor for your needs? It’s not as difficult as it may seem. Here are a few tips for finding the right Reno chiropractor.

A Little Background

If you’ve looked online for a chiropractor, take some time to check out their website and look for reviews on third-party platforms like Google and Facebook. It’s also good idea to get an idea of their area of expertise. Here are other things you want to know, which can typically be accomplished with a phone call:

  • Additional treatments – Does the chiropractor offer complementary therapies like nutritional counseling, massage therapy, heat therapy, myofacial release techniques, electrical muscular stimulation, ultrasound, or others?
  • General treatment approach – How are treatment plans typically made? Based on your symptoms, could the chiropractor give you an idea of recommended care? Note that this may not be an option without a physical assessment.
  • Qualifications – Ask about the chiropractor’s training and credentials, including ongoing education.
  • Pricing – Sessions can vary tremendously from one chiropractor to the next, so inquire about pricing. Dr. McSweeney here in Reno charges $40 per session and can work with you to submit claims through your insurance company.

Initial Consultation

If you’re ready to schedule a consultation, take the opportunity to inquire about how long your treatment plan may last. If you schedule an appointment with Dr. Lynelle McSweeney in Reno, here’s what you can expect.

  • You will be asked to complete paperwork that gives Dr. McSweeney a comprehensive understanding of your lifestyle, and nutritional, medical, and pharmacological history.
  • She’ll also conduct a physical assessment to help her identify areas of asymmetric or dysfunctional movement patterns.
  • Traditional orthopedic tests, a body read, and a palpatory exam will also be conducted. With these tests, Dr. McSweeney will be able to make a recommendation about care.

Finding the Right Chiropractor

Making a decision about the right chiropractor in Reno doesn’t have to be a challenge. Listen to your own judgement when it comes to the chiropractor’s manner, approach, recommendations for care, and timeframe – does it all sound reasonable? Speaking to the doctor first can alleviate many of your reservations, and Dr. McSweeney here in Reno is happy to answer any questions you may have about chiropractic care for you and your family.
